An Attorney Who Can Handle Defense Base Act Claims

The Defense Base Act is an extension of the Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act (LHWCA), an area of law that attorney Herbert Chestnut has practiced in for more than 38 years. If you or someone close to you has been injured while working under a U.S. government contract overseas, you may be entitled to compensation under the DBA. Herbert Chestnut & Associates in Savannah, Georgia, can help you understand your rights. If you qualify for compensation, we can help you fight for the full amount available under the law.

Who Is Covered Under The DBA?

The DBA is designed to provide compensation for people working overseas under U.S. government contracts. Many people eligible for compensation under the DBA work under contracts with the U.S. Department of Defense in defense-related support or construction or under contracts with other federal agencies. When an injury strikes, the DBA is the only means of obtaining compensation, as these job duties do not make them eligible for standard workers’ compensation benefits.

Our law firm is committed to helping injured U.S. government contracts obtain the benefits they need to recover after an on-the-job injury. We are one of the few firms in the Savannah area with focused experience in this unique area of law. Whether you call Georgia home or live anywhere in the U.S. or abroad, attorney Herbert Chestnut is here to serve as your trusted ally in this legal process.
